House is great and the lake access and dock to swim from cannot be beat. Had a great few days away from the city. Owner was very responsive and assisted with everything we needed. Overall excellent stay!

Our family had a great time at this cozy little cottage! We enjoyed swimming, kayaking, playing games and fishing off the dock. We visited 4 state parks while there and saw so many waterfalls and gorges. We also walked to Thirsty Owl one afternoon for lunch. The cottage was clean and had the amenities needed for our family of 5. Kerri was responsive to all of my questions and made us feel welcome. This was our first time visiting the finger lake region and we can’t wait to come back!

The location is ideal for exploring wineries, going boating or fishing swimming, just hanging out or visiting local parks. Everything thing you need. Steps to lake with nice fire pit and dock. Inside space is more than ample and although rustic is really charming. We loved having our coffee on the deck with choice of comfy seating. The inside has a nice sized dining table we also used for game night. The larger of the the two bedrooms is spacious and the other has a queen bed and fine for two. My only complaint is that my time went too quickly. My daughter and partner loved to kayak and we all loved hanging out by the fire pit. We really do d not need to bother host because instructions so clear. Thank you!

Very relaxing and elm beach is a friendly neighborhood, nice water, and wildlife. Ospray and mink are locals to watch fishing.

This was our second time staying here and it was just as wonderful the second time. We splurged and rented a boat for a few days and the kids loved every minute of it. The house is perfect for a small family and being able to just run out the door and jump off the dock is priceless. We enjoyed paddling, swimming, hiking, and biking the area. A last day highlight was lunch at the Thirsty Owl. We already know there will be a third visit at some point. Thanks to the Caslin family for opening up such a special place to us.

We were so lucky to wake up to a beautiful lake every morning. Wish we could have stayed longer. We visited all around: Ithaca for lake trout fishing, Seneca Falls for a late-night dinner, wineries, beers, and hiking. We really enjoyed the atmosphere of the house and its simple and lovely comforts. We had great weather and loved our stay. Thank you!

Our family had a great time relaxing and enjoying the water at the Caslin Cottage. The kids enjoyed the swimming and kayaks and enjoyed having their own big bedroom to retreat to for quiet time. The firepit and seating on the shore was great for Smores in the evening and the views are beautiful day and night. We cooked almost all of our meals at the house and had no issues with finding everything we needed. Checking in and out was easy and seamless. Thank you Caslin family for the great stay!

Perfect location!
I can’t say enough about this location! At first I was hesitant about the road between the house and the shoreline and asked Kerri about the traffic. She was right.. very little traffic and limited to residents. I’d guess ten vehicles passed by in four days, and there are speed bumps so they travel at a snails pace. The reviews are correct in that the house is on the ‘rustic’ side, but it has all the amenities and had plenty of room for our party of four. The flow from the back door was the kitchen, to the living room, to a nice enclosed patio/dining room, to the open front porch where the views of the lake are incredible! We used the two kayaks several times a day. Although the kitchen was fully stocked, we used only the stove top and cooked all meals on the nice grill in the backyard. The fridge/freezer had food already in it, assuming that the house is used by the owner when not reserved, but we neatly moved things aside to give ourselves a dedicated shelf in the fridge and used the door of the freezer so my family knew what foods/drink I brought. It wasn’t a dealbreaker, truthfully. I’ve stayed on Seneca Lake which is more commercialized, more traffic and more wineries. On Cayuga Lake, we traveled to about ten different wineries/distilleries all within about a 12 mile stretch. The views of the lake along the way made the ride worth it. There is even a winery not far from the entrance to our quiet street if you’re up for a walk (up a hill) when traveling from the house. Booking was easy, communications were clear and the cancellation policy is very generous, too. Highly recommend for families with children, quiet girls getaway or anyone who is a water enthusiast! Oh, and the walk out onto the private pier to view the skies at sunrise and sunset make for some beautiful pictures! Truly is an amazing location. We’ll be back - 100%!
